    This one’s going to be a little different:whistle:

    It’s electric:o for a err start:laughing:. Not sure on battery requirements at the mo, and it might well be
    IP.

    If you lot are interested, I’ll try and post up a build. It’ll not start for a few days yet. Just thought I’d get the juices flowing :D

    I’m with you on that one. Electric motor design has gone crazy since the start of formula racing, this wouldn’t be possible if it wasn't for them

    I’m presuming it’ll fall under LAA regs @Shox Dr ? Are there existing regs on electric powered light aircraft?

    I’ll have a look, not something I have really considered, I would imagine flight times would be pretty low during aerobatics etc

    For Pylon racing, a specific record class or 'just because'?

    To answer your first non-question. Try to find a participant in this forum who won't read a Build Thread on this.

    But if it takes as long as that Mini........
